TRENTON – Gov. Jon Corzine issued an executive order to extend the deadline for candidates to file to run in April’s school board election because Monday’s snowstorm closed most of the schools in the state.
The deadline had originally been Monday afternoon, but in many school districts no one was in the office to accept the petitions. The governor extended the deadline to 4 p.m. Wednesday.
“We need to make sure we have the ability to have people fully have a chance to participate in the electoral process,” Corzine said.
A list of all candidates who filed will be printed in next week’s newspaper, and will be available tomorrow on cmdmedia.wordpress.com.
